Sun Records, located at 706 Union Ave., was a record label based in Memphis, Tennessee starting operations on March 27 1952. Founded by Sam Phillips, Sun Records was known for giving notable musicians such as Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Roy Orbison, and Johnny Cash their first recording contracts.

The music of many Sun Records musicians helped lay part of the foundation of late 20th century popular music and rock and roll.

The company remains in business today as Sun Entertainment Corporation.
